The partnership opportunities that were opened due to the Kenan Fellowship have been endless. It was great working with Dr. Smith to further develop the connection between academic statistics and real world applications of statistics. It was a great opportunity to see what current professionals are researching and where they need help after academia. It has been a great opportunity to not only recommend and demonstrate to students realistic applications, but also other teachers. While working on the project over the summer I did have the freedom to explore the topic further on my own but Dr. Smith was also there whenever I needed assistance. I hope to communicate with Dr. Smith further research opportunities especially his interest in some of the high school track and cross country races and extensions.
